Work Experience Placements

Request

I would like the information in answer to below for every year back to July 2011.

1 –

1a - The number of people carrying out work experience placements in Brentwood Borough Council who are claiming Job Seekers’ Allowance (JSA)

And I would like these numbers for each scheme you are involved in. For example, the schemes involve: Mandatory Work Activity, Job Centre Work Experience Scheme, Sector-Based Work Academies, Work Programme work experience placements (both voluntary and mandatory schemes).

1b – I would like to know the length of a placement on each scheme you are providing placements for (as these can vary greatly in length)

1c – I would like to know the Brentwood Borough Council departments where each placement was carried out.

1d – I would like to know how many people were given jobs in Brentwood Borough Council at the end of their placement.

1e – I would like to know any fees paid to Brentwood Borough Council for hosting these placements.

I would like the answers to all parts in question 1) again but for people claiming Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), and not JSA as in question 1
